#52ancestors Post Forty-Six: My Web Site

The writing prompt for #52ancestors, post forty-six, was Random Fact so decided it was time to tell a few facts about my website. 

In the late 1990s, I had my first website at AOL Hometown. I used it to post unidentified photos of family in hopes of matching these photos to names on my family tree. My ambitions grew, technology improved, and I moved those photos, along with much-found information and transcriptions, to a Rootsweb Freepages account in 2004.  Last year, Rootsweb struggled with security issues and removed all accounts. My site returned to the Internet a few months ago. 

Although I haven't updated the site since 2012, you might want to visit it if you are connected to any of my families. There are at least 70 pages of family trees, photos, and document transcriptions. 

The site was built when many were still using dial-up, screens were smaller, and photos had to be reduced in size. If you see a photo or document you need, send me an email, I can send you a better copy. 

I don't plan to update it. I don't know Rootsweb's plans and it's much easier to add to my blog. And, most of those pages will eventually become part of my blog.
